Interpretive Summary: Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is an important viral disease affecting animal health and economics through impacts on agriculture and trade. There are numerous different strains of FMD-virus, and vaccination or previous infection with one strain does not protect against infection with a different strain, so it is important to monitor which strains are causing outbreaks in an area. Sampling of viruses that cause FMD outbreaks provides important information of which types of the virus that are present within the given geographic region.
Technical Abstract: We report the near full genome sequences of 18 isolates of foot-and-mouth disease virus serotype O, and 6 isolates of serotype A obtained from outbreaks in Pakistan between 2011–2012. The scarcity of full-length FMDV sequences from this region enhances the importance of these genomes for understanding regional molecular epidemiology.
